What looks to be attractive and promising the year, without a doubt, THE BOILING SPRINGS AFTER the wise men of the tribe had glme to counsel with Manitou his wrath endured for ninny days. And the storms came and the ilgi~t- ning tlaslmd and tim thunders rolled, and the tribeslnen were nmeh afraid. Ti~en when the storms finally had ceased, the face of Mtmitou frowned on the world for many weeks. The sky was overcast and the cold sun shown dimly througll the clouds. The streams that imd one time danced and sparkled in the sun no longer flowed, but the waters stood still and the fishes died and the water was foul --so foul that the Indians dared not drink it. Out of the east c'une cold winds bringing grasshol)pers which devoured the grass and bhlssoms and plants, and even the trees, until no green thing reumlned. And man and beast alike were without food, and the world was filled with pestilence and disease and the chosen people were helpless and forlorn and children ceased to smile and play. Bad grew worse, until the chosen people, troubled and afraid, knew not whence to tm'n. So their hearts were filled with repentanee, and witi~ hmn- ble contrite hearts they besought the Manltou that he might save them from death. And so they prayed and fast- ed week by week and called upon the Manitou to pardon their transgres- sions and to stay the deadly plagues. Hearing them, *the ManSion took plty upon the puny frightened people and sent a lesser god from out tlie sky, who traveled down the Holy Mbunt at night until he reached a spot where plain and mountain met, and there he smote a rock. And where he struck there gushed forth a fountain of water. It was very fair, hut when the Iwavest of the people tasted it, it was too bitter to drink--- so Mtter that no living man could drink it unless his mind be pure and his body "strong. Three times he smote, and each tlme brought a spring, each sweeter than the other and more fi~ir. And then, stooping, he breathed the breath of life into the buhbling waters that all who drank shoah] be mad~ whole and springs remain, though the tribesmen long since have gone. And now the tribes unite in giving praise to him who gave the springs, and in his honor they eall them Manitou, and so they now are called to this day. Note.---The Manlt_0u springs now are famous the world over, but they were known to the Indians for hun- dreds of years before they were dis- covered by the whites. Even now it is not unconlmon to find arrowheads, bends and even bits of pottery about the springs where they were thrown by the Indians as gifts to Manitou. Sheep Lived Long, Though Staked. When the sheep were mustered for shearing on a Nel)rask,~ farm one was found to be badly "staked." A piece of wood 2 feet long entered the shoulder blade and came out under the belly. The end of the stick was touching the ground and had heen worn smooth hy tile continual contact. Obviously the accident had ilappened some time before, as the flesh at the entrance was t)ealed up, though the underneath Wound was a bit raw. Ten minutes after the stake was pulled out the animal died. Turtle Escaped Death. A turtle, seven feet long and weigh- ing 1,000 pounds, was landed at Douardenez, France. Its captors hav- Ing difficulty in finding a buyer, the tur- tle somehow or other, with the aid of mischievous boys, rigMed itself on its legs. After taking a survey of the place, it plunged into the sea, promis- ing no doubt in its own mtnd to give 15ouardenez a wide berth in the fu- ture. Why Spend So Much? Come Here!
